    Hi Ladies,

    Well, I have had a pretty rough day. Briley has been very upset most of the day. Not sure what's going on. She just starts crying then just starts screaming at the top of her lungs. I'm thinking its wind. She had a spat at mums this arvo so we put her in the car and drove to get some dinner and i brought some kids panadol for her and that and the drive seemed to settle her down a bit. We went to the Dr. today about the conjuctivitis again and he sent away a referal to a specialist at the hospital cause he thinks she has a blocked tear duct. I didnt think it would come to this. I've only read about this sort of thing. Ohh well hopefully it will finally put an end to it.

    Lea - What's the deal with the "incidents"??? I must've missed what was happening. I just caught a bit from your last post. Someone stalking you???:mad:

    Tannis - Sorry to hear your having a bit of tough time. I know where you coming from mate. Its all worth it in then end though is'nt it!

    Well i suppose i better answer these cool question and head off to bed. I'm buggered. Since getting my computer back i have been sitting up till 10.30-11pm on the internet. Naughty Naughty!!

    Baby questions
    Are you BF or FF and if FF, what formula do you use?
    I was breastfeeding at first but had a few issues so i decided to put her on formula. She is on Heinz Nuture 1 Starter. A friend recommended it and Briley took to it straight away.
    Whats the longest stretch of sleep at night?
    12 hours!!!
    Have you managed to get a routine at all?
    Yep...just recently actually. Briley has a shower with mummy, has her bottle and then goes to bed at about 9pm and sleeps till 5-6am.
    Any rolling over, smiling, 'talking'?
    Lots and lots of "cooing", babbling, calling outs and squeling!! No rolling yet though. Not sure if she'll get the chance to roll from her stomach to her back as she does'nt like being on her stomach at all!!
    Funniest thing that has happened to baby?
    Nothing really that has just happened to her. But to her and i. We were at the show in Townsville and i decided to try her on formula that night. So i made her a bottle while sitting in the grandstand. She drank the whole bottle. So i burped her and she was just laying in my arms nice and quietly. I gazed down at her lovingly and she did the biggest power spew right in my face and all over my clothes. I had spew all in my eyes and everywhere. Man it was funny!! We were all POL!! Poor ol' Briley did'nt know what to do!
    Baby names given?
    Bubba Girl, Bloss(short for blossom), Bunz(short for honey buns!), Miss Moo, Baby Girl and Dumpling!!

    Mum questions
    Favourite food?
    Tacos, Wood fire BBQ's, Roast Dinners and really cold coke!!
    Where would you most like to be right now?
    Settled in on our farm!! Surrounded by our animals. I can't wait. We all can't!!
    Favourite TV shows?
    House, Greys Anatomy, Medium, Some reality shows, Crime shows, Deal or No Deal and Wheel of Fortune!!
    Best thing about having kids?
    Having them!! I can't wait to go back for round 2. But don't quote me on that. It could easily change when my waters break!!

    Well...that was fun!! Thanks Vic. Hi to everyone and i hope all is well with you all.

    now

    Talk to you all tomorrow.

    Shazz ~ A friend mentioned the photocopying idea to me after I relayed my 'almost lost my purse story' LOL. I thought it was good too.

    Sara ~ I hope Brileys conjunctivits/blocked tear duct is sorted out for you soon. I have had several issues with DP XW (and accomplances) stalking me around the threads. I see you like Tacos - have you tried the McDonalds El Maco... it taste just like a taco lmao!!

    Kim ~ Grrr @ the IL's and damn about the meet. I know you were looking forward to it as well. I know it took me a bit of nerve to go and meet people I'd never even met before LOL and if that had happened to me I would have felt so silly. You won't let it affect going to the next meet will you?? And ROFL @ your fave foods... or hated foods!! You always manage to put a smile on my face hun!!

    Tannis ~ How are you hun??

    Well my little man is asleep - don't they just look like cherub angels when they are sleeping... I should go to sleep myself. In fact I am heading there right now!!

    Big hi to Kellee, Vic, Ange, Marlea, Jodie, Bec, Sheree and anyone else my baby brain may have forgotten LOL...

    Morning Girls,

    Kellee: Happy birthday Charlie (sorry its late!!) Picnic in the park sounds great!! I'm glad it went really well and Charlie had a good time!! Good to hear Toby is going good too and enjoy your busy week!!

    Mummy: I hope Phoebe settles down again for you! I agree with Nat maybe she is just making up from being sick or the dreaded growth spurt that all these babes are going through LOL. I keep getting told to let them go at their own pace and they will get themselves into a routine....easier said than done though when your up all night and all day. I am lucky because Jayden sleeps really well at night but hardly anything now during the day.

    Shazz: How is Nick doing? I hope he's feeling much better 3 kgs is a lot to lose in a short time!!

    Nat: How did your house inspection go.....that is one thing I don't miss about renting! DP and I renting for 8 yrs in Melbourne, it didn't bother me cause I like moving house etc but the inspections were the worst!! Esp because we have 2 dogs and a cat that they didn't know about haha. Congrats to your cousin and Em finding his feet! haha. I had my first daysince Jayden was born that I just thought " I can't handle this anymore" I think I overreacted a bit but everything I think is ok now...Aww thanks for the hugs!!

    Vic: Hope the kids are getting better. I think you all need to move further north!! Jayden has never been sick and I haven't been sick since I was first PG and I had a bit of a cold!! I love the "getting to know Mum & Bub" questions they were great

    Sara: Congrats on the car, what a great price! And for Briley being in a routine!! I swear all our babies are jumping online when we are sleeping and planning their psycho days LOL!! I know now its all worth it but at the time OMG!! haha I hope Briley's eyes get better soon and its nothing too serious. I am usually up and on the internet until about midnight hehe.

    Leanne: I glad things have settled down for you and good on your DH for giving you a break!!

    Bec: Congrats to your sister, Mia is a gorgeous name! How much did she weigh? A friend of mine kept saying (before she had her bub) that she won't bother packing her bag until she goes into labour cause she will have heaps of time...As she got closer to giving birth she decieded she will pack her bag...lucky she did as she woke up in full labour and was at the hospital and havin a baby within 2 hrs......I made sure afterwards that I was ready for a quick dash.....I had heaps of time though as my waters broke at home before the contractions really started.

    Jodie: OMG!! How dramatic!! A bit of drama in your life is interesting but that is over the top I think!! Poor you! How is everything now? Thank god you found your PDA too, I'm lost just without my phone if I have gone out and left it at home! How did Shaun go at Child Health? How much does he weigh now? I tried to get an appt for yesterday but they are booked out until net Tuesday!! Good to hear he is sleeping better for you!

    Kim: Sounds like you have had a rough few days too....IL's, Medicare, BB meet, well they say bad things come in 3's so hopefully thats it for you!! At least Darcy has been good for you hehe. I'm pretty sure Jayden was going through the growth spurt as he was feeding every 1.5-2hrs instead of his normal 4hrs. Its so hard at the time though when all they are doing is crying and I would feed him and he would still cry!!

    Sorry about the long whinge!!
    Our rough few days started just before Jayden and I went to SIL #1's house for her bday on sunday night, he cried and cried all the way there on the way I had to drop into a friends, post a letter and get petrol.....he didn't let up the whole time. By the time we got to SIL's house he was hysterical!! Then I have FIL go "why do you let him cry like that!" OMG I said "I can't pick him up while I'm driving can I!! If I could he wouldn't be this bad now!" Then SIL #3 fed him EBM for me while I ate, he was still hungry and upset so I was going to give him a bath first (to calm him down) then feed him. No thats not how you do it..."feed the poor baby" they say. Then SIL #4 said "The mum knows best" (not being sarcastic) and I looked directly at SIL #3 and said "YES the mother does!" But I went and fed him anyway. He had settled down after that and was going to sleep and SIL #3 was BEGGING to bath him, I gave him to her and said fine go run the bath......You all know by now that DP has a big family so a family birthday is a big affair......well I went up to the bathroom after Jayden had been in there for a while and I COULDN"T GET IN THERE!!! The bathroom was full of ppl watching him have a bath....I heard someone announce a little earlier that J was having a bath if anyone wants to come up. Everyone cleared the bathroom (poor J was getting agitated in the bath form the crowd) but they gathered around the bed to watch him get dried and dressed......Jayden was crying like nothing else by this stage (after I had got him calm earlier) Can you believe there where 11 ppl (not including Jayden or me) in that room watching him.....it was so loud from everyone talking I had to yell over the top to tell them to shut up it is quiet time for Jayden now!! I took him off whoever had him and cuddled him until he fell asleep then SIL's MIL and two of the nieces had him after that. We got home and I fed him so he sleeps through but didn't go to sleep til 1.30am and then woke at 6am. He wasn't too bad in the morning but I got into the shower and thats when it all started!! I had to get out to calm him down I couldn't get dressed I was standing there in bra n knickers trying to stop him from crying, I took him in his room and shut the door cause DP was asleep still. DP ended up coming in and asking what was wrong with him (but didn't offer to take him while I got dressed!!). Anyway I got dressed while holding Jayden and took him back to his room....I felt so bad I just wanted to put him in there and walk out!! I didn't though I sat with him in the rocking chair and he eventually went to sleep. But I just sat there and cried for an hour. DP couldn't understand why I was upset as he had stopped crying. But all day he cried and cried.....it was the first day that I have thought " I can't handle this anymore" DP did end up taking him while I hung the clothes on the line because he knew I had reached the end of my tolerance, so I just ignored them both for about half an hour while I got myself together then I fed him (yet again). We went to a candle party that night and he was (of course) an angel all night!!

    Sorry that was so long but I had to get it off my chest!! I feel heaps better now. I have left a fair bit out too haha but its long enough already!! Those questions made me feel a lot better too esp reading everyone elses!!

    Hope you all have a great day to all

    Mummy – sleep? What’s that?! Only joking, it’s not too bad. Sorry to hear that you guys have been crook. Hope it all goes away soon. Could the extra feeding have just been a growth spurt? Toby has had a couple of those and I get worried about my supply too. I hope that’s all it was/is.

    Shazz – poor little Ryan and Nick. Your poor boys! Hope that they are both on their way back to being their normal lovely selves.

    Lea – congrats to your cousin! Weddings are so exciting. And LOL at Em discovering his feet. It’s funny when they play with them when you’re trying to change their nappies. Hey, and where’s your ticker and cute pic of Em?

    Vic – Bugger, you guys always seem to be sick! Hope that lump doesn’t turn into anything sinister either. Are you going the GP?

    Sara – yay for the new car! I can’t believe your survived up there for so long without an a/c car. You won’t know yourself in summer! And it’s better for Briley too – they can get so hot in the back there. And yay for Briley being in a routine! What kind of routine is it?

    Jodie – OMG with that girl. That’s scary. I hope you can remain as un-involved as possible – you’ve got enough on your plate atm without being responsible for her too. Glad to hear Shaun is sleeping more!

    Kim – LOL at all your typos – you must be tired! Great that Darcy is sleeping 5-6 hours at a time, but hopefully she’ll start doing it at around 11 at night instead of over dinner… cheeky bugger!

    Tania – BIG HUGS to you. We ALL have days like that, don’t worry, but it must have been terrible having your parenting skills ‘on display’ with everyone telling you what to do. I would have given up and gone home – you’re better than me! I would put my foot down and tell everyone to bugger off next time! I agree with Vic – the sooner you stand up to them the better it will be. I used to have some major problems with MIL and the way she was with Charlie but once I started being firm about what I needed her to do she was great. Sometimes I still feel like strangling her but it’s much better. I know it’s hard – we’re here for you!

    Are you BF or FF and if FF, what formula do you use?
    BF and love it
    Whats the longest stretch of sleep at night?
    5 hours
    Have you managed to get a routine at all?
    Yep – thank goodness. The afternoons are the hardest when Charlie is trying to sleep too, but sometimes I’ll just sleep in bed with Toby or have him in the sling (like now), but every other time it’s all very good.
    Any rolling over, smiling, 'talking'?
    LOTS of talking! He was talking so early and I think he’ll beat his big brother to saying sentences! Lots of smiling too – he’s such a happy boy
    Funniest thing that has happened to baby?
    Um, I don’t know, really. We laugh at him all the time because he has such great ‘conversations’ with us. I reckon he’s going to have a wicked sense of humour like his Poppa too.

    Baby names given?
    Mr Toby, Baby, Darling, Bubba, Toby-One-Kenobi
    Mum questions
    favourite food?
    Oh bloody hell. You guys know I’m a bit of a foodie so I don’t really have a favourite. 7 hour lamb roast is up there though.
    where would you most like to be right now?
    Don’t tease me! Um, probably Europe with DH, taking in the music of Eastern Europe (Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania)
    favourite TV shows?
    HOUSE, without a doubt (I’m in love with Hugh Laurie, but don’t tell DH that), The Simpsons, Lost, All Saints
    best thing about having kids?
    They have taught me more about life than I will ever teach them. I know it sounds corny but they have made me a better person. I love the cuddles and kisses and Dr. Suess stories, and especially the giggles and smiles.

    Well, not much to report here. Toby had a shocker last night but this morning it became clear why when he had the WORST nappy I have ever seen from a baby – how he could store that much in him I don’t know. No wonder he was upset! Otherwise he’s been going really well – I wish I could find a solution to the problem of putting him down when C is asleep in the arvos but other than that he’s fabulous. Such a happy fella. Oops, I hear an unhappy little man who needs a cuddle. Hope you’re all well.

    Evening all of you that I will probably miss tonight. Yep Kellee, I was tired and they get worse when I'm rushing - my statements at work have to be read a few times before I print and sign LOL.

    I wanted to write what I remembered from yesterday...
    Oh Jodie, you poor love. I really hope she's not still stalking you and they get her some help. Do you have a psychiatric hospital in your area? If she's still giving you grief, it can't hurt to ring them and tell your story. Sometimes they have an assessment team that can help this girl.

    Sara great news about the car! Woohhoo for the fantastic price.

    Shazz - you champion for getting to work on time!! I used to be such a stickler for getting to places on time. Now I couldn't care less they can start without me if they want.

    Tania - OMG! They need to get a life! Sorry, but the poor child is going to be around for like 80years and have thousands of baths. How would they like a cast of thousands watching them???

    Well I've had a lovely day today. I did three loads of washing, tidied and did the dishes (6 weeks ago anywhere near that much was unheard of), and hung the washing out. I went to Spotlight to get some muslin for new wraps (Darc has gorwn out of all of hers and I have been using a sheet). They had some fab prints. Then I had a great afternoon with a good friend with lunch and a great bit of cake. Then I came home, went for a walk to get dinner stuff came home, fed the baby, and just like she should she wanted to go to bed at 6.45 and so she is wrapped up and tucked up and went to sleep by herself! A successful day all round!
    DH got into a pursuit this am that made the radio and he is still at work charging the 2 pooheads, so I hope he gets home in time to meet the pastor in an hour.....

    and Kellee tadah! no typos!!

    Just going to do a quick post. Fill you in on my latest...
    Suicidal girl - seems to have calmed down now. calls & SMS's are dropping off. She's left the ex alone too. Now they are getting to the "she has my fax machine/he has my sewing machine" crap. I spoke to Beyond Blue, Life line & Crisis Assesment Team yesterday. Basically there is not much anyone can do. It appears she has an "attention disorder" - not really "depression". They said I've done the right things... and I just have to be careful she doesn't latch onto me.
    PDA phone: When it got lost on Sunday I called Optus who arranged to have the sim & the handset locked. I got the phone back Sunday afternoon, and the handset wasn't locked. But for some STUPID reason - they locked it today at 11am!!! Idiots.
    Shaun: He went to maternal health yesterday and he's 60.5cm - which is 11cm growth in 12 weeks! He had a huge growth spurt in the last 4 weeks, as usually he would only grow 1/2 to 1cm. He now weights 6.07kg. He's also got a new nickname - "Flathead". The back of his head is flat - and nurse said he needs more tummy time. Although he hates it; I give him tummy time every day. I can't really give him more tummy time - so I've decided to set up his jolly jumper as he's got really strong head control. Hopefully his head will become rounder. :-)

    Sorry... no time to do personals...
    but Tannis - hugs to you! I guess there's no way to avoid all that family! Poor thing.

    Hey Girls,

    After posting my big whinge this morning I realised I never mentioned the great day we had yesterday! Jayden's feeding has slowed down again, he slept better through the night and even had a few sleeps during the day and if he was awake he was happy playing under the gym. So I tried to get into some housework. I thought I'd start with vacuuming my room......3 hours later I emerged!! I wanted to put the valance on the bed but then while the matress was up I thought I'd move the whole bed and vac underneath it, then moved everything in the room to vac under it all then thought I might change the room around (with DP's help) haha if I didn't know any better I would think that I was PG again and "nesting" early!! Today we went shopping (bought more clothes for Jayden) and came home to do nothing!!

    Its not good when our bubs play up all day but it is good to know that it happens to everyone IYKWIM. I don't wish it upon anyone but its bound to happen at some stage.

    Vic: I am starting to speak up more with them but it is hard because they are so much older than me (SIL#1 just turned 45). I do appreciate advice from them but especially SIL#3 doesn't think before she speaks and I guess what she says comes out wrong or rude! Listen to me making excuses haha I have to tell them like it is!! Who knows a baby better than its mother? You know when Adam is hungry or tired or just bored!! Those questions were great what other ones can we do? LOL

    Kellee: I will def tell everyone to bugger off if it happens again haha hopefully I don't have too, I think they got the message after I had to yell over the top of them. I have a lot of patience when it comes to DP's family! Good job on getting MIL to butt out LOL my MIL is probably the best out of all of them! I know you are all here for me, and even if you don't read when I whinge its good to get it off my chest anyway haha Poor Toby with his full nappy haha, I'm lucky Jayden doesn't poo often or a lot!! We have had a few explosions though.

    Shazz: Aww Nick's a trooper!! I'm glad everything went ok and good luck with the results on Friday!!

    Kim: Sounds like you had a great (and busy) day today!! Ooo a pursuit how exciting....probably not for your DH though haha. Did he make it home in time? How did it go with the pastor? I took photo of everyone gathered around Jayden when he was getting dressed I'll have to get it up so you guys can see it!!

    I just found out today some ppl DP knows had a baby last week and they have found out he has down syndrome poor thing! They are only young too, he would be about 30/31 not sure how old she is (I don't know her) but prob around the same age.
    SIL #5 is now looking for more egg donors so she can try again, which made me think if I would donate mine. I don't think at this stage I would as I still want more babies (or at least 1 more). But what about everyone else? Hyperthetical(sp?)

    Would you donate your eggs to someone in need?

    If so how close would that person be to you ie: Sister, SIL, Friend, Stranger etc.

    Ok I have gone on and on for too long again haha

    Have a good night all.....and all you bubs sleep well all night!!
    xoxoxo

    Tania so glad you had a good day. I laughed at your bit about the housework. I never thought getting the housework done well would feel like such an achievment!
    I have thought about the whole egg donation thing before too. I know a few people that are desperate for shildren and are stuggling. I know though it has to be after a couple of years after you've had your last and final child (well it is here in NSW). I don't know about a total stranger but close friends and family i definitely would. I'd even probably thing about surrogacy for them if it meant that much.
    I also wanted to add to my 'questions' - the one about the talking
    Ever since Darcy was born when you put the dummy in and she is tired she says oioioioioioioi. It's so cute. When she's cranky she says it really fast and just as sh'e dropping off she whispers. But its the best thing to say back to her when she's in her bed struggling to settle. It's like she understands that.....sorry just rambling. It's lucky for her she is so cute.

    Boy a lot has happened in these past few days. It's hard to keep up with you ladies...

    Bec: Congrats on the new bub in the family. I love the name Mia. I sometimes miss the newborn stage too as my dd slept more then but then that's all she did, but the way she interacts now is much better. Especialy when she gets the poopies and tells you off!....

    Jodie: What a dramatic weekend you had last weekend - poor thing. It's good to hear that things are settling down now a bit re the suicidal lady. Must have been pretty scary stuff tho. And good on the person who handed in your phone. People like that are far and few between these days. It's also good to hear that Shaun is growing so well. I hope it continues well for you.

    Tania: you poor thing with the bath incident and your IL's crowding your space and little Jayden's. I think you handled it very well. I would not have been able to be so polite.

    Sara: Hope Briley's tear duct clears up. Kaitlyn has the same thing. Sometimes when she wakes her eye is full of green goop and she can barely open her eye. She did have a round of eye drops for it about a month ago, and they helped. Picked up another bottle today..... They also say massage helps, but my dd won't let me near that section of her face. It's hard enough keeping the drops in !!

    Shazz: Well done for getting to work on time. I don't think I could do it; going back to work AND getting there on time. I have gotten too used to having the little sleep after the 4:00 am feed.

    Sorry if I forgot anyone. Hope you're all doing well and getting the rest that you need.

    Well today we went and had a look at the pics taken last week. They turned out okay, but not as well as I had hoped. My dh did not even sit down at the table with me, he stood behind me.... Can you believe that? And he's a VERY tall man, so I felt a little uncomfortable. So there I am looking at the pics and the lady says, you can buy photos individually, or the whole package for $1300. WHAT?!!! There were only about 7 A4 size sheets (actually I think they were smaller), and a lot of the pics my dd had her tongue out. She has a pressure mark at the top of her nose and on her right eyelid, and because she was so upset on the day it's bright red in most of the photos. I asked DH "so what do you think", and he said " I don't like any of them", so I was put on the spot. We ended up agreeing on taking one pic for $70, together with the freebie that was part of the initial deal and went on our way.....

    My last few days have been better. Kaitlyn has been feral at night these past couple of nights but has gotten some good day naps in. Yesterday I walked up to the community nurse and had her weighed etc, and then a good friend came and shared some quiche and her great company with me.

    Anyway, another long post from me, so I best be off. Still have that housework to do. Did not end up doing it all the other day as I got sidetracked with quilting....

    :O)

    Hi Girls,

    OMG you girls can talk up a storm....so much to catch up on, well too much to catch up on actually.

    Phoebe is gradually getting back to her old self...Like some of you have mentioned, I too now believe that it was just a growth spurt. I tell you what I feel like a jersy cow after the past week. I have had such a huge boost to my milk supply that the other morning I actually leaked, which hasn't happened in such a long time. I haven't had to worry about boob pads for at least 2 months and the past few days I have made sure I have put them in when I have gone out, just in case. She has gone from sleeping through the night to waking 3 times a night, now it is down to 1, so hoping it gets back to normal soon. It has been such a shock to the system having to get up during the night to feed, as I haven't had to do it since she was 4 weeks old. I tell you what having broken sleep is just not for me, as I guess it is for all of us. I feel like sh*t in the morning. I shouldn't complain as overall I have had it pretty good with little miss. I feel a bit guilty complaining as some of you have had it really tough with sleep and feeding issues, so I should thank my lucky stars.

    Leanne ~ aren't men such pains in the *ss, and DH making you feel uncomfortable, now that is a typical male act. I guess it was probably a good thing that he was so honest about the pics as you don't want to spend that sort of money on photos you aren't completely happy with. Gee, professional pics are so expensive??

    Never ~ Talking about egg donation, I've got a friend who did that. One successful pregnancy with the arrival of a little girl. I think she found it quite rewarding, to give the gift of a child. She saw herself as fortunate to have had 2 beautiful, healthy children (she later had another 2) and wanted to do something very special for a childless couple.

    Angelique ~ I loved your answer to 'the best thing about having kids', the way that Katerina looks at you, like you are the best thing in the world...that's because to her you are. Such a huge responsibility to be a mum, but it is those little things that make it worthwhile, keep us all grounded and make our hearts melt. How are the nights going for you and Katerina? I know that at around 4 months, babies like routine and their days to be predictable so as she approaches that age, here's hoping that it all comes together for you both.

    Kellee ~ So have you had a few days of rest or slowed down at least to catch your breath...such a busy bee, big plans for the weekend???

    Nat ~ Have you started Em at Kindergym?? If so how is he going? I'm hoping to get Samuel started soon. I need to get him involved a bit more with other kids, he starts kindy in 14 months *sigh*, so he needs to be out socalising a bit more. Are you going to the Show on the weekend? I am so looking forward to it, Samuel should be big enough to go on a few of the kiddies rides.

    Sorry to those I have missed, this post has turned out to be a big one for me.

    Take Care X

    Gee it's quiet in here today, nothing since midnight...
    I am really thinking someones swapped my baby.....now she sleeps after a morning feed and again after the next one - in her bed even!!! Goes straight to sleep at 6.30 and doesn't wake until about 2.30 - today it was 4am!!!!!
    Also, I know some of you didn't have screamers, but have you noticed they have started crying less? Or am I just getting the hang of this and she's not so scared anymore? LOL

    Have a good weekend everyone.

    So much to catch up on… lazy me LOL!!!

    Tania ~ Inspection went really well thanks for asking. LOL @ hiding 2 dogs and a cat – how on earth did you manage that?? I am going to ask my landlords if I can have a dog sometime next year as we want to get Emerson a puppy for Christmas next year! Hopefully they will say yes!! I’m sorry but 11 people is just too many people to be watching a baby bath LOL – the poor little boy. Its hard when you need to tell people to back off but those people are family who don’t really listen… Glad to hear you had a great day anyway. I love moving furniture around – so much fun!!!

    Vic ~ Good on you for sticking to your guns with the solids issue and your sister. I seriously don’t know who people think they are. I would never tell ANYONE what I think they should be doing with their kids. I would make suggestions but I would never think to know more about a child then his/her mother!! And apparently the el cheapo teats are the best!! I hope that lump is just a milk build up hun! Sounds as though Adam loves his playtime as much as Em does!! :eek: @ all the sick kids as well.

    Kellee ~ Ticker and cute pic back up . He has lost interest in his feet again – now its back to jamming his fists into his mouth!! LOL @ the worst nappy ever from Toby.
    I know it sounds corny but they have made me a better person
    I know exactly what you mean!!

    Marlea9 ~ Sorry to hear the pics weren’t great. They sounded expensive though so its probably best you didn’t fall in love with them IYKWIM. Glad to hear that things are going better now as well.

    Shazz ~ I’m glad that Ryan is doing better now. And making it to work two days in a row LOL – nice work!! How much does Ryan weigh now??

    Kim ~ Sounds like you had a lovely day Wednesday!! OMG @ Darcy saying oioioioioioioi – I swear that is exactly what Em does. When he is tired and you pop the dummy in he sits there and says that so angrily while he’s fighting sleep lol. OMG goes to bed @ 6.30??? What do you do for the rest of the night LOL??? Em is up until 12 still – at least he is consistent!! Em has definitely started crying less – or maybe his cries have changed…. He knows what the bottle is though lol and will be quiet if he sees me preparing that for him hehe!!

    Jodie ~ Thank god suicidal girl has calmed down now LOL. Stupid Optus – grrrr!!! And Shaun sounds like he is doing really well!

    Ange ~ LOL @ Hueys cooking adventures – I can’t stand him LOL!! And I love that look they give you as well!! Great answers!!

    Mummy ~ I went to kindergym week before last however this week I had afternoon tea with my SIL so I didn’t go. I think I will try and make it every week from now on though. That would be so cute to Samuel on the kiddie rides. I have my Dad visiting tomorrow and then I’m working Sunday so there is no show for me this year. I took my sister a few years back and there wasn’t really much there then. It is fun though!! I used to love being able to enter things @ school to appear in the show LOL. And it was Lisa who donated wasn’t it??

    EGG DONATION
    I would consider donating my eggs to close friends or family members after I’ve had all my children!!

    I think I’m in trouble… last feed was at 12.30 and now he’s asleep and hasn’t feed since… oh well. This is a mammoth post isn’t it?? Not much happening here. I’ve had a really good week though. I’ve got lots of little stuff done. My uni application is almost ready to go in which I’m so excited about it. DP & BIL have been acting like little kids and both now have remote control aeroplanes LMAO. BIL has already smashed one into a goal post ROFL so we will see how long this phase lasts. I think it will be awhile – the last remote control gadget was DP’s remote control car. He swears its really all for Emerson and Lucas hehe… yeah right I say!!

    Big to everyone. I hope you and your bubbas are all doing well!!

    Nat I do the rest of the stuff I can't get done throughout the day becasue Darcy doesn't like being left to her own devices! You eat, go to the loo, have a shower....speaking of which, Cam's on arvos again, might disregard the water restrictions and have a long one for a change....

    LOL @ having a long shower!!! When I lived at home we had to have 6 min showers!! They were timed and my step-dad would start banging on the door if we went over. Now I normally have 2 showers a day without a time limit hehe!! Very naughty of me!!

    Here's a question: What is everyones gift ideas for Fathers Day??
